Our Acne Blaster hydrocolloid patches are created for larger breakouts. Each shape is specifically designed for the different areas of the face. Hydrocolloids are made out of gel forming agents such as carboxymethly cellulose. They have hydrophilic particles, which help to absorbs excess fluid, oil and pus, aiding in the recovery of acne flare ups. They can also create a moist environment for faster healing and act as a protective barrier from external irritants such as debris and touching.

After cleansing the face, identify the blemish and apply the patch. You can also cut the patch to your desired shape or size. Keep the patch on until it begins to swell and white bubbles appear. A minimum of 6 hours is needed for the patches to work. Avoid use if you are on Accutane.
